One of the UAE’s aims is to be number one in the world for higher education. Today we talk to Zayed University art student Khulood, known to her friends as Kika.

Kika’s major is animation and she also studies 3D modelling. At the recent D3 exhibition in Dubai Design District, she exhibited her work about meditation and technology called Digital Destination.

“The government has supported us with a free education. Zayed University is one of the biggest in UAE and it’s totally free and I managed to achieve and study here”, says Kika. “It taught me very well.”

“I want to open my own company here one day”, she says. “To prove that every single artist here can have a place and have a job.”   

And why does Kika love Dubai?

“Because it’s between the traditions and innovations.”
